The best gig of the whole tour, I am sure!

But lousy weather to start with :|

Hope it clears up this evening.

Anyone from abroad I might expect?

Err, the three regulars (Eva, Helen and Andrew S), and that's about it AFAIK... But the Heartlanders of Belgium (well, we're more like the Heartlanders of Antwerp right :lol: ) will certainly be there, won't we ;D :von:

Hope it clears up too... The forecast doesn't seem that bad, does it...

Aha, so that's what it was :D Helen is now very busy finding out to which song the lyrics belong :lol:

Storming gig, again, but completely different from the Tilburg one... This one just rocked, they showed they're still a top league rock band, whereas the Tilburg one was just pure electricity and very intimate...

Robochrist is getting even better, he was much more confident than before, still missed Von's lovely comments he was more like 'Thank you' all night long (to which I answered thank you :lol: )

Loved everyone I met, again, and I'd like to thank them for the Top Nite Out... Piccies wil come tomorrow :wink:

Perhaps this is off topic, but if anyone wants to trade a small UBG for the XL I bought on ebay that's mint, PM me.


And I can't wait for those leather pics! :twisted: :von:

They were amazing ! I saw them several times already, and I have to admit that this was one of their best shows... Andy's voice was fantastic, and Adam & Chris played great too !!! Best live Temple of Love version I ever heard ! Damn. Next appointment in 2007 ?

good, I'm awake :P

it was incredible, the show had a very different vibe than the Tilburg gig (partly becaus it was outdoor) but the band seemd to play even more energetic this time.
adam and robochris Rockd the place down and VON was clearly having a good time.

in the chaos infront of the stage I found a old familiar-> Randdebiel² (if you people still know him?)
other than that a big :notworthy: to Eva, Helen and Andrew S
and to the other nice people as well ofcorse

Since I'm off for the holidays, just a very short review.

Best gig I ever saw since 1992. This is not a goth band, this is pure rock and roll. I hope people understand this now.

Also, this is not Andrew, this is a BAND on stage. Most of the time there were THREE people singing and there were THREE people up front.

Top nite out/snub nose was another highlight, where the two guitarists used the catwalk to put themselves in between the crowds, with floor-spots full on their faces, like real rock stars.

Big surprise for me was Emma with the different lyrics.

What also surprised me was the very very good sound (for a Sisters gig I mean) and the enthousiasm of our glorious leader. Twice at least he bowed deep for the audience and he even waited politely for the applause to recede et al.

I'm stunned. I was amazed. It seems like someone stuck a cattle prod up :von:s arse and put it on 'almost lethal'. This could also explain the Halford-look of course.

Vive la Fete was also nice, so was Monza. But you can't be arsed to care of course...
